"This anthology of essays, interviews, and autobiographical pieces provides an invaluable overview of the evolution of contemporary music—from chromaticism, serialism, and indeterminacy to jazz, vernac"

Brian Zeger

The new contributions make this a valuable book even for those who own the previous edtion. In their new preface the editors write that "as our century comes to an end. . . the state of contemporary music is richer, healthier and broader than before." Not all may agree with this assessment but the present volume does much to shed light on the current scene. -- Chamber Music Magazine
